An important first in Brazil
Schneider Electric Alta Tensao has installed the first two compact modular substations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for Light Serviços de Eletricidade SA, the Rio de Janeiro State power company. Compact substations take up 30% less space than traditional units, providing a cost-competitive solution for small lots. Schneider Electric Alta Tensao supplied the equipment for the project, built the substations and assembled the components, conducted test trials, started up the units and provided on-site service after commissioning.
The Compact solution
The Taquara and Santissimo substations comprise :
- two 145 kV integrated Compact modules,
- a Sepam protection system ;
- Blokset low voltage enclosures,
- A supervision system.
